Have never seen that brand here in Lincoln NE. I use Valvoline 75W90 for my Forester front and rear diff. A qt is about $5.00 to $6.00 at most any auto or farm store and I wont need to change it for another 50,000 miles. So far no issues even with the sub zero temps we have had. I will probably trade it before I get another 5K on it. Lucky if I put on 5 to 7 K miles on it in a year. So nice o be retired and not have to buy gas every week and drive every day to go to work anymore Tank of gas will last me a month or more now

I'm the same with BJD78.

I'm sure its a great lube, but after joining BITOG, I no longer get the tinglies running pricey stuff. And my wallet is happier.

Somebody who's all about JDM will for sure want it for the stickers.

If a company can't even stick to the regular nomenclature with regard to viscosity grades (hint SAE J306), then to my opinion, every single claim that they make after that point is drawn into question.
